Two dashing romeos bend the truth to spice up their lives. Jack has invented a brother, Ernest, whom he uses to escape his dull country life, and to woo the ravishing Gwendolyn. His best friend Algernon also decides to take the name 'Ernest' to cosy up to Jack's beautiful ward, Cecily, in the country. However, things get messy when their deceptions are discovered, threatening to spoil their romantic pursuits.

Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest is one of the world’s most enduringly popular comedies, boasting some of the funniest lines of the English language.

In W!LD RICE’s exciting production, celebrated theatre and film director Glen Goei puts a provocative spin on this comic masterpiece by casting an all-male ensemble - revealing new insights into Wilde’s comedy about courtship, hidden identities, and the foibles of high society.

Don’t miss the chance to catch this radical, gender bending and absolutely W!LD interpretation of Wilde’s classic, which premiered in 2009 to much critical and popular acclaim. After a sold-out three-week run, it went on to win three awards at the 2010 Life! Theatre Awards for Best Production, Best Supporting Actor (Chua Enlai) and Best Costume Design (Frederick Lee). It also gleaned nominations for Best Director (Glen Goei) and Best Supporting Actor (Ivan Heng).
